    VIA P4PB Ultra Review - Benchmarks

    (Page 5 of 8 )

    SiSoft Sandra 2003

    The P4PB Ultra put up similar numbers here to the more established ABIT IT7 except when the IT7 was able to push the processor to 3.47 GHz.  You can also see the 166MHz and 200MHz memory bus speeds giving a little extra boost in Dhrystone over the 133MHz setting.

    Similar results here.  The P4PB Ultra and IT7 perform very similarly here when running at the same speeds.  The interesting thing is the 166MHz and 200MHz memory options make virtually no difference on this test.

    Now we really start seeing the difference between the 133MHz, 166MHz, and 200MHz memory speed settings.  As you can see the biggest jump for the P4PB Ultra is between 133MHz and 166MHz, approximately 500+ points.  Meanwhile the jump from 166MHz to 200MHz only gains about 140 points.  Apparently the latencies between the 133MHz system bus and the 200MHz memory bus start showing in this test.  Worth noting, again the P4PB Ultra with the VIA P4X400 chipset matches the IT7 with the Intel 845E.  This is impressive considering memory performance has hurt previous generations of VIA Pentium4 chipsets.

    Here the VIA P4PB Ultra thoroughly outperforms the ABIT IT7.  I should note that I have never really gotten decent hard drive performance out of the IT7.  I was pretty pleased with seeing the results from the P4PB Ultra.  As expected the CPU and memory speed have little to no affect on this benchmark.
